Last chance

The last full day of the trip. Before heading back towards San Francisco, we wanted to give the Donner Pass railway another try. The day before, we didn’t get to make a photo of a freight train, hopefully we would be able to make up for it.
We had seen some possible photo locations close to were we had been waiting the day before, east of Truckee. We were lucky with the trains that day: after a short time the first train appeared behind the corner, treating us with this view. Notice the snowcapped mountains in the background.
